Clara had her first day at day care last Monday while I took William to get myself fingerprinted. We packed her morning snack and lunch, brought out the new shoes, and filled Elmo with diapers and spare set of clothes. It feels frighteningly close to real school and she looks frighteningly older than my little baby Clara.
Last night we took the kids to Tallahassee’s hopping Halloween neighborhood in Midtown. Clara walked the streets pretty darn confidently for the most part.
The houses here go all out with the decorations. There are hundreds and hundreds of people walking its streets. Here are a couple shots of some of the more spectacular displays:
So those are fake dead people hanging from the spider’s web.
This was a cute costume. I wonder if I’ll ever get this excited about my kids’ Halloween wear . . .
Of course, what’s the Halloween before a major election without any politics? I thought she was going as a women’s bathroom until Aaron pointed out that this is what has been called a “binder” in a recent presidential debate.
